I *still* don't know how cutting a groove in plastic which you then drag a little needle inside makes a noise like french horns or Joey Ramone. What is that? Magic?!

Subject: How did they get the photo?
A nice accompiment to 'In Living Stereo' where it told of how 78's are made, 'The Sound And The Story' teaches us how vinyl records are made. This is done by going step by step, by first showing us a recording being done of 'Romeo And Juliet' by the Boston Symphony, to the taping of it, a master being made, to dupes of the master, a mold, and then finally, the dupes of the mold. All of this is explained in a suprisingly easy and interesting way, since I've never been told how records are made. Another interesting point about this, is how many women they had working at the RCA shop, not just typists or what have you, but you had women working the stamping machine! All to get this record, which by the way, is a very rare (and expensive!) find nowadays.. Reccomended! (The film lol not the record)

How were those old vinyl records made? Here's the answer! So many steps! So complicated! No wonder we have mp3's now! Fascinating!
